Daily Tip – Clarets can frustrate Newcastle

Rafa Benitez

Burnley’s away form has tailed off in the last few months but they may be able to get a result at Newcastle this evening.

The Clarets have lost their last four in a row in all competitions but that is not such a massive concern as they have played Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United during that run.

The Turf Moor side are winless in six on the road, with three draws and three defeats, and that run could continue beyond this midweek round of Premier League fixtures, although a point could well be on the agenda.

Off-field issues have impacted on Newcastle’s form and a lack of January arrivals is a worry in this final day of the winter transfer window.

Rafael Bentiez’s men are unbeaten in three at St James’ Park but have only managed one win in that time – an FA Cup success against League Two Luton.

A draw at 21/10 looks a good bet in this one and we may see a few goals. Admittedly even the most optimistic of fans could hardly hope for a classic encounter between these two sides at present, and suspect defending rather than quality attacking play is the reason we may see the nets at both ends bulge.

Newcastle and Burnley have both conceded eight goals each in their last four games and with these two leaky defences a draw with goals is my tip at 7/2, and a 1-1 draw at 5/1 stands out in the exact score market.
